Hay un nuevo recurso federal para obtener pruebas caseras de coronavirus gratis autorizadas por la FDA. En el sitio web COVIDtests.gov/es, encontrarás información sobre las pruebas y un enlace con el Servicio Postal de EE. UU., special.usps.com/testkits, donde puedes encargar hasta cuatro pruebas rápidas para que te las envíen a tu casa. O llame al 1-800-232-0233 (TTY-1-88-720-7489) y oprime 2 para español para ordenarlas. Tus pruebas caseras te llegarán a tu casa por correo a través del Servicio Postal de EE. UU. dentro de un plazo de 7 a 12 días.

Las pruebas son totalmente gratuitas. No hay costo de envío y no tienes que dar el número de una tarjeta de crédito o cuenta bancaria. La única información necesaria es tu nombre y tu domicilio. También puedes ordenar pruebas para otra gente que no tenga acceso a internet, Después de hacer tu pedido, recibirás un número de confirmación de orden. Si das tu domicilio de email, también recibirás un email con la confirmación de tu orden y actualizaciones de la entrega. Cualquiera que te pida otra información, es un estafador. Así que recuerda:

  • Visita COVIDtests.gov/es o llame al 1-800-232-0233 (TTY-1-88-720-7489) y oprime 2 para español para ordenar tus pruebas caseras de COVID ofrecidas por el gobierno federal. Si haces clic en el botón para ordenar las pruebas, el sitio te redirigirá a special.usps.com/testkits. O si sigues un enlace desde una noticia, reconfirma el URL que aparece en la barra de domicilio de tu navegador.
  • Nadie te llamará, ni te enviará un email o mensaje de texto de parte del gobierno federal para pedirte tu información para “ayudarte” a ordenar tus pruebas caseras gratuitas. Únicamente un estafador se comunicará contigo para pedirte información de tu tarjeta de crédito, cuenta bancaria o tu número de Seguro Social. No respondas. En lugar de responder, repórtalo a la FTC en ReporteFraude.ftc.gov.

Por favor, comparte esta información con los demás, y permanece conectado para mantenerte informado. Suscríbete a las alertas para consumidores de la FTC para recibir actualizaciones enviadas directamente por email a tu buzón de entrada.

Si detectas a un estafador que está ofreciendo pruebas de COVID, infórmaselo de inmediato a la FTC en ReporteFraude.ftc.gov. O presenta una queja ante la oficina del fiscal general del estado o territorio correspondiente a través de consumerresources.org, el sitio web para consumidores de la Asociación Nacional de Fiscales Generales. Tus reportes pueden marcar una gran diferencia porque nos ayudan a investigar, entablar casos de cumplimiento de la ley y alertar a la gente acerca de cuáles son los fraudes con los que hay que tener cuidado para que puedan protegerse y proteger a sus amigos y familiares.

Nota: Este blog, originalmente publicado el 19 de enero de 2022, fue actualizado para incluir el número de teléfono gratuito para llamar y ordenar las pruebas caseras rápidas.

In order to travel overseas, a PCR test is required. Is it possible to get those test kits, instead of the antigen test?

Try calling to order your kit - "Or order your kits by calling 1-800-232-0233 (TTY 1-888-720-7489)."

I tried to order the tests, but it came back and said that someone had already used my address to order the tests. I am the only adult at this address. How can I get tests when I can't order them because it states I already have, or is this a BIG BIG bug in your ordering process?

Do we fill out form every month or do we automatically get 4 kits monthly?

I started to order these tests, but then I read the Privacy Act Statement below and became confused and concerned. Why do I need to agree to a laundry list of government lingo that I don’t understand? These are NOT FREE if you have to relinquish your rights to this many government agencies for the rest of your life? Please explain how accepting a FREE PRODUCT can be used to provide information “to agencies and entities to facilitate or resolve financial transactions????? This seems extremely obscure. special.usps.com • Privacy Act Statement Your information will be used to provide COVID-19 Testing Kits to the address you provided, and to provide company and product fulfillment information about that testing kit to a federal executive agency.

I'm glad that I read this, I'm not going to trust anybody next the right people that send me this ("Covidtest Kits") out, next the federal government. These Scammers should be cought, and locked up for good. That's the way I've always felt about steeling from other people. THANK YOU AGAIN!

What is the phone number to call since I can’t get it sent to my apartment

I live in a multi-family house with two apartments. My neighbors ordered tests (using their apartment number) and now I get a message that the address was used. My building only has two apartments, but this makes me wonder if the website is set up so only one family in an entire apartment building can order a kit? How can I correct this. There is nowhere on the site to report a problem or error.

I used your order program for Covid-19 tests and find it easy to use. You should have a reordering system setup so I can order more after using these four test kits

A household in the U.S. can order a set of four free at-home tests. The limit is one set of tests for each residential address. Go to special.usps.com/testkits to order the tests.

The place that really needs these kits are college students yet my daughter cannot order one since her college add is considered a business address. I guess I found the major flaw in this program.

I live in a 2 family house. I ordered my tests including the apt/floor #. My neighbor who lives in the apartment above me couldn't get the tests because they said the tests were already ordered for this address. Yes, same address but separate apartments. Need a solution.

You can decide whether you want to give your information to get test kits. The Privacy Act Statement on special.usps.com/testkits explains how your information will be used.

I'm getting the same already ordered at this address for my apartment like make others have commented. To everyone who asked for a phone number to call, there is one in the blog article. I'm going to email the facility itself and see if there is a glitch or if one family in an entire apartment complex can get them. Then maybe they can tell us if they work or not? Lol Hang in there people, I'm guessing a glitch.
